Today is the first day of Spring! CELEBRATE!
We have been anticipating this day since the Christmas garlands and bulbs were packed away. A few snowflakes here and there were a delight, but the bitter cold seemed determined to stay and refused to go away. Freezing was the only word to describe our weather in this part of Nebraska.
The children and I have been cooped up way too much and we have been counting down the days until it was officially Spring. To embrace the change of seasons and express our gratitude for warmer days, we crafted with flower blooms. It brings new meaning to the phrase "Flower Power".
"Ka-Bloom Into Spring" was our mantra as we sifted through discarded artificial flowers and dotted our glue. The children enjoyed this simple craft. It brightened our day and cheered everyone up!
To make this fun craft, rummage through old artificial flowers or ask at a store if you can collect bits and pieces of flowers that fall in the aisle. This technique works really well around Memorial Day when the stores are stuffed with flower arrangements. I save them the effort of cleaning up and collect neat blooms to use for decorations or crafts.
What are you doing to celebrate Spring?
